Galleria Dental Aesthetics uses state-of-the-art dental technology in Alexandria to provide you with the best treatment that cosmetic dentistry has to offer. Our commitment to provide you with exceptional results drives us to stay abreast of revolutionary dental technology.
Intra-oral cameras are small, pen-sized machines that allow the dentists at Galleria Dental Aesthetics to take a closer look at your teeth and gums. We view what the camera sees through television monitors in the treatment room. This allows us to identify problems that may have otherwise taken longer to recognize.
Digital x-rays can be magnified up to 300 times and are much more reliable in spotting problems than traditional x-rays. They also lessen your exposure to radiation and eliminate waste because there is no need for photo chemicals and traditional film.
MYOTRONICS K7 AND TENS UNIT
The Myotronics K7 and TENS unit are extremely accurate and highly sensitive devices that are designed to evaluate your bite and determine if it is malaligned. The TENS unit gently stimulates the muscles with low frequency electrical pulses, releasing the painful toxins that build up in jaw muscles to help them relax. The K7 is then used to measure muscle activity and place your bite in its optimal position. The K7 is also utilized to confirm the position of your bite after dental work is completed.
Digital imaging allows you to see what your smile will look like after your procedure is completed, before any dental work even begins. After taking a photograph of your smile and before your procedure is started, we use computers to change the image of your smile based upon the recommended treatment. This will give you an idea of what your final results will look like.
My two front teeth in the middle were showing a lot of wear and tear. Overall, they looked somewhat short and one tooth had a very visible chipped-off corner. I have been a patient of Dr. Lee’s for over a decade, and finally he convinced me that changing my smile could really enhance my appearance. While I thought my teeth looked okay, Dr. Lee felt confident that they would look much better with veneers, and he was right! It only took eight upper veneers, and now I have a smile that makes me feel much better. To anyone who is considering improving their smile, I say – go for it! It’s made a big difference in my life. – Richard
